The first, in my humble opinion, real pub to open in downtown MV. With the opening of the Porterhouse, in 2002, the bar was raised for downtown eating and drinking establishments to a more upscale and urban level. It still retains the rural character of a small town pub but with an edgy, urban thread. When I first visited the Porterhouse, I talked to the creator and he said that what he envisioned was similar to the Blue Star in Wallingford, where he had once worked.
